Beacon Hill

With its Federal-style row houses, brick sidewalks and gas-lit streetlamps, the prestigious Beacon Hill looks like a well-preserved version of its 18th Century self—and the perfect neighborhood to explore on foot. Highlights: Charles Street Meeting House, views of Boston Common and the Public Garden, Louisburg Square, African Meeting House, Church of the Advent, a few high-profile politicians at local pubs and at its summit, the eye-catching State House.
